At the beginning of September 2016 Mac released a limited edition collection in collaboration with Taraji P. Henson. The collection quickly sold out and being some of the best products Mac has released this year, there was a lot of talk about dupes. I heard several people compare the blush shade, Taraji Glow, to Mac’s permanent shades in Burnt Pepper and Raizin. I don’t personally find Burnt Pepper to look like Taraji Glow in a swatch or on my face. But I do think that Raizin could be a reasonable alternative. Raizin is a matte blush, so it lacks the sheen on the skin that Taraji Glow gives, but the tone and how it looks on the face is very similar. If you aren’t makeup obsessed or own tons of makeup, I doubt you’d notice much difference in the color.
Mac Burnt Pepper and Raizin retail for $23.00 @ Nordstrom.
